About Connaught Place (CP), Central Delhi, Delhi NCR
The entire swirl of Connaught Place is divided into a circular cluster of buildings, opening into various wide lanes tipped by glittery showrooms, restaurants and commercial sector. Beautiful Georgian architecture arrests one’s eye with its high arches running parallel to the entire circle. A central park is erected at the heart of Connaught Place, cleverly disguising the famous Palika Bazar and then branching into a spread of stunning skyscrapers gleaming in the sun. Tucked into this melange of foliage and concrete is historical heritage buildings like Agrasen ki Baoli and more modern versions like National Philatelic Museum and The Imperial. Today Connaught Place is just not a centre of power and history but it has become a sought after destination for gastronomy and retail. Just hop in a cab or a metro and come experience the old world magic of Connaught Place.
